Distracted From Basic Science - Interruption Management

Makes you wonder what is distracting them from basic science:

American's Understanding of Science: From the National Science Foundation's biennial report issued on April 30, 2002 on the state of science understanding, research, and education, of 1,574 adults surveyed:

* 46% didn't know long it takes the Earth to orbit the sun. (One year)
* 55% didn't know that lasers work by focusing light.
* 49% didn't know that antibiotics kill bacteria but not viruses.
* 52% didn't know that the earliest humans didn't live at the same time as the dinosaurs.

Also:
* 43% read the astrology charts at least occasionally in the newspaper.

What's worse, the percentages haven't much to this day. Nearly 50% believe that God created humans in their present form within the last 10,000 years
